How ironic is it that even as the toxic Corona Virus is currently killing hundreds of thousands of humans across the world, the air outside is also fresh, less polluted, and good to breathe in? Hosting a pandemic to gain an enhanced environment is a pathetic way of nature. As the disease cuts down so many humans, it has given Mother Nature more than a thousand reasons to smell liberty. Perhaps, it is a form of revenge from the unmerciful tortures that human beings put the environment through.
The virus spreads through surface or human contacts. Hence, the outbreak of coronavirus has resulted in governments announcing lockdown in several countries. Ah, what a clean spare of nature! Over time, the outside world showed vibrant changes. Seas are bluer than ever, trees greener than ever! The sun shines with a bright smile and occasionally, clouds let the earth cool down by pouring rainy mornings and evenings.
The lockdown applied affected a wide range of firms and industries. As an outcome, the chemicals that the factories used to let out in the form of air pollution, has stopped. Therefore, air and soil quality have improved in many parts of the earth.
The rate of loss of lives or illnesses of the people residing around those factories has decreased. Similar to these pollutions, harmful smoke coming out of cars has also lessened dramatically and so did time killing traffic. Consequently, carbon, nitrogen dioxide, and poisonous gas emissions have reduced. Another significance deduced from these is control over global warming. This decrease in pollutant emissions is a wide step towards a promising and sustainable future of the earth.
The stoppage of deforestation has given the forests a new green life. The animals living in jungles are so happy and free that they are wandering inside, around, and even outside the wilds. Not to leave out, plastic and waste pollutions in seas have also decreased.
Out of all the negativity, the optimistic thought to take away is the happiness of the trees, oceans, birds, animals, and fish for being able to breathe in air that’s cleaner than ever!
